Canada: Tim Hortons

timhorton.jpgI would like to say, for the record, that I have repeatedly and with an extremely positive attitude, tried the donuts at Tim Hortons, the Canadian donut competition to Krispy Kreme and Dunkin’ Donuts, and I am sorry to report that they completely suck. I love Canada but, yes I’ll say it, I love donuts more and theirs are terrible. I have been to Tim Hortons several times over the years but I tend to always eat the same donuts – raised or chocolate – so this time I went Bill Nye on them. To make sure I wasn’t generalizing, I bought a box of donut holes – or “Timbits” as they call them – two each of sour cream, glazed sour cream, cake, raised glazed and chocolate glazed. They were all equally awful. This is because they all taste exactly the same even though they’re all different textures. (I hate tofu for the same reason.) I couldn’t tell you what this flavor is specifically, but I’m betting it’s a blend of hazelnuts and Dawn.

Also, they’re missing an apostrophe. Even Dunkin’ Donuts has an apostrophe.
